Monday 8th - Rest Day // Mr B - 12 minutes Easy, 12 minutes Steady, 12 minutes Easy
This week is the culmination of a many-year project at work so it was a very early start and definitely a rest day!
Mr B did a little bit of effort work as guided by BenFP and it all seems ok on the hamstring front
Mr B - 4.5mi, 36:02
Tuesday 9th: Me - PM run in the dark // Mr B - Physio exercises
Early start again but back earlier than expected so went straight out. Mr B is signed off track and an easy run around home was as much as I could muster to we skived the 20x400m session
Me - 5mi, 40:25, 8'04/mi, 141bpm
Weds 10th: Me - Pre work run // Mr B - 10 minutes Warm Up, 6 x 3 minutes at Threshold effort with a 90 second recovery, 10 minutes Cool Down
Mr B said.."Hamstring fine after running but complaining with driving in evening more than it has been recently. Lower right back feeling tight when running - will swap trainers for long run"
Me - 37:12, 9'09/mi, 145bpm
Mr B - 5.96miles, 48:05
Thursday 11th: Me- Rest day // Mr B - Physio exercises
Big day - we switch BBC1 over to all new playout systems today. So, no running... just an early start and a celebratory trip to the Bang Bang Oriental Food Hall in the evening
Friday 12th: Me - AM and PM run! The project is complete! // Mr B - Run to and from work (swapped from Saturday long run as hes on a Weekend of Men!)
So, it's all done and it was a much less stressful week than I was expecting. i was assuming I'd barely run this week, but given that I was so close to my 20mile p/w target I thought it'd be rude not to try..
Mr B thought the hamstring was getting worse towards the end of his morning run, but then on the way home he was tired but the hammy was fine. Fingers crossed.
Me - AM 3.3 i, 29:15, 8'41/mi, 147bpm + PM 5mi, 45:59, 9'09.mi, 162bpm
Mr B - AM 5.0mi, 41:51, 8'18/mi, 165bpm + PM 5.0 mi, 40:08, 7'59/mi, 154bpm
Sat 13th - AM run via paper-shop // Mr B - rest day (weekend with his mates)
I had planned to run in the evening to allow more recovery after the double yesterday as the balls of my feet are aching, but I woke up at 6:30, so I made "superhero muffins" and then went out to get the paper via a detour to make 3 miles. Was much less uncomfortable than I was expecting.
Me - 3.0 mi, 26:45, 8'46/mi, 163bpm
Sunday 14th - will be either a rest day, or conditioning work if I can beat myself into it. Legs are feeling rather leaden though!
Mr B - 20.4
